Two Vintage Bags

Sylvia traveled happily with Enoch for many years. While we are unsure as to where their travels took them, we do know that they carried these beautiful, well-crafted bags. They most doubtably did not wear velvet or cotton sweatsuits when traveling either. The zippered compartment of the second bag was probably used to hold a pair of shoes. Perhaps they were used for overnight travel, carried along with a garment or suit bag for a wedding or special occasion. While taking the trash out one morning, my pal Michael bought these on his neighbors stoop sale.

Good subtle point. “Velvet or cotton sweatsuits” What the **** is wrong with people? Do they want to be like the cast of a Jerry Springer show?

Awesome. I wanna have the brown bag, look so pretty. In comparison to the newest post on the Vintage bags, I do prefer the longer handles but I think both are great finds. Thanks for sharing this post so much.
